XBox Me

Warning: Fairly sappy

So Matt's been gone since the Tuesday before last, gone home to Elko to spend some much-needed time with family and whatnot. Originally he was due back tomorrow, but as he came down with a sinus infection within a couple of days of getting home, his dad talked him into staying an extra day to get rest before making the 12-hour drive home. I agree with his dad, I worry about him being healthy for that drive, and it makes perfect sense for him to stay.

But still...

I haven't been able to sleep well since he's been gone. Not seeing him, not talking to him (he went on a weekend hiking trip, and so was incommunicado for a couple of days)...it just seems wrong. While I was at my mom's, it was better, probably because I don't have real memories of being with him at Ma's. Now that I'm back in the dorms, though, I keep wanting to walk to his room and see him there, walk around campus and spot him on his way to the library or somesuch...

I do believe I am thoroughly stuck with that boy. I wouldn't have it any other way, other than possibly being able to get a bit more sleep when he's away.
